I was surprised to find this book on my iPod. I don't remember downloading it. I have never heard of the author or of the book by its title. So naturally I listened to it. I thought it was an excellent 'read' and thought the narrator did a good job. It is hard to imagine this book read by a male narrator, or any female reader doing a better job. The book has a sort of 'rapid fire' style which might put some people off. Also it might be offensive to Scientologists.
I thought the book was well presented and well read. As a physicist I like the authors treatment of time.Interesting story, but one that I can well imagine that many would not like. I think you need to suspend judgment to enjoy the book.It is nothing like a Monty Python movie but I suspect if you don't like those movies you will not like this book.
I liked this book a lot. It is the best book by Lee Child I have read or listened to. I am buying a copy for my wife who is also a Lee Child fan so that she can appreciate the book without listening to this narrator. The narration is the only reason I would not give this five stars. In many ways this is a locked room murder mystery in the manner of those written so cleverly by John Dickinson Carr. I did figure out who the villain was but not how it was done. All the clues were there.
I would guess that this could best be described as a love story. I did not find it particularly funney. There is not much of a plot. On the positive side it has lots of very interesting characters. I am not sorry I listened to it but would not recommend it to anyone who is not a fan of the author.
